Around 1985, one of my very first personal growth teachers was a man named Harvey. Each Tuesday night, a very small group of us would gather in his West Hollywood living room and he would share the wisdom he had learned after having a near death experience.
One night he asked us if we had clothes we considered “A,” “B” and ”C” clothes.
(“A”s” being our most favorite clothes, the things we felt really great in.)
We all said yes.
I admitted my “C” clothes were the ones I was saving for the day I planned to wear to wash my car in, or paint my house. (I was renting a small apartment in a big complex at that time and would never have the chance to hand wash my car or do any painting!)
Harvey boldly suggested that we get RID of all our “B” and ”C” clothes and only wear “A” clothes so that we would always look good and most importantly, FEEL our best.
Wow, what a revelation that was. And it made so much sense!
On the day I met Brian (nearly 17 years ago) I was wearing a really cute baby blue mini-checked summer dress with a scoop neck and some gold jewelry. Brian was wearing a red polo shirt with a collar and some khaki short pants. I am amazed I remember this because I generally have a terrible memory, and I am not that observant. I do recall that I felt great in that outfit!
My friend Linda Sivertsen met her soulmate four years ago. Yesterday I asked her what she was wearing and she said that her beloved STILL talks about how HOT she looked the day they met.
She was wearing cute jeans (that fit her bootie just right), a fun tank top plus
“I was having a great hair day. And, I had on really cute heeled sandals so I was walking a little taller that day.”
Ed and Deb Shapiro met at a party 28 years ago.
Deb recalls, “I was wearing a red Indian tunic threaded with gold, black leggings, and red sling-back heels. I loved this outfit and so did Ed!”
Years from now, when you look back on the day you met your soulmate, it’s likely you will remember what you wore and what he had on, so for those of you practicing “living as if” you might want to be adding this into your program.
When you look good, you feel good and gals, we already know that men tend to be really visual. So look to adorn yourself in colors, styles and fabrics that bring out the best YOU!
Wishing you love, laughter and magical kisses,
